I understand your frustration, Normand, but I hope you will continue to contribute to the project.  It's important work and your contributions, and those of the community as a whole, are extremely valuable.

May I suggest a reading of [ETHICALREPO] so that you may see that "zealotry" is an unfair categorisation: github (and others) exhibit problems that have a real impact on freedom.

You should of course have the freedom to publish your personal design files wherever you wish, but the files in question represent, in some way, your contribution to a public project. As such, consideration must be given to the goals of the project and the ideals that underpin it.

Please keep up your good work!  The success of the project depends on contributions like yours.
